    Completely agree, it looks way overblown now, pretty awful especially in VR. Id go as far as to say ruined it.

    Also had 2 x crashes on the desktop. Never happened to me before. The German translation in the new UI and the setup menus should also be revised. It's really bad...The old UI The old UI was really better. And we are all of the same opinion in our league.

    Can those of you who have crashes mention what content you select and when exactly it is crashing? It will be much more helpful.

    That's one way to look at it, but essentialy the system should work no matter if you are are long time user or a newcomer.

    I got to report the above mentioned issues aswell. When you load a track in the competition system for the first time, it seems to crash the game. Join freezes are quite heavy aswell. Nice to see that the black polygon issue was fixed so fast so I hope to see similar fixes for the freezes and crashes in a reasonable time. Because besides those two issues it works pretty nice.

    Clouds look a bit smoother, wich is nice. Autoexposure seems a bit extreme though. With some fine tuning it might be perfect.

    Thanks for that. Strange how support posts seem to mention how to turn logging on, or ive been reading old threads or docs that havent been updated

    It always logs even with it off (as default), but it's less detailed. When you enable it it's more detailed (and bigger files).

    new build, new german translation.
    This fits about 90%.
    The remaining 10% can be greatly improved.
    If you mean the radiator opening by the size of the radiator or the accelerator pedal is referred to as a throttle, it's worth laughing at.
    The tailgate is the rear wing DRS ...?
    So guys, that's totally embarrassing!
    Please touch up.

    Hi guys,

    First, thanks for your effort at solving all this issues of new UI.
    As I said here, this is still not working:

    Maybe some changes on shaders broke it...
    If there is something we need to tweak on our mod to make it work, or some documentation I missed, please tell me.
    Thanks.

    You're starting to butcher the game now. Instead of reducing bugs number, it just grows. I honestly don't understand how this got out, who tested this build? Exposure is unbelievable, game crashes more than not. This is really really bad and honestly sad. It will be interesting to see how long it will take to fix this newly introduced bugs.

    I read about the joinlags on different servers, but I even experienced them massively in the Competition System. And what about the CTDs that affect some here. Currently the game is not usable like that.

    No way. I was under so much heat when i reported leaving lags, but now we have joining lags too. At least it is a change.

    I must admit, the reason for changing the exposure baffles me. Did any changes need to be made to it anyway, I thought it was absolutely fine before.
    Surely its better to fix stuff that needs attention than fix something that works, and then breaks something else.

    The auto exposure in cockpit veiw was disabled iiric. They enabled it, not "fixed it". It wasn't there in the first place.

    Too bad, I am holding on previous UI, so can't actualyl see on my own. But I have checked few most recent rF2 videos in YT, and perhaps it does show bit too bright, but I would nto say that it is terribly too bright.

    Looks like this guy has other issues.

    20:30 it seems like improved skies appear, and sunlight et occluded.

    I wonder how it would be if our monitors could possibly have as much brightness as there actually is IRL, I guess sirmacers would stop driving on sunny weather, and instead using overcast weather would become the main choice.
